strongly anti-war education in congress and on the ground forced polk to bring the war to a close even though he wanted more territory. it did limit the territorial acquisition from this war. i believe that had polk been allowed to continue fighting, mexico would have been forced to give up more land than it did. it definitely mobilized the public in support of bringing an american war to a close for the first time. it is important to acknowledge antiwar movements existed in the past, that they can work, they can have real effect and limit the loss of life. the anti-war movement in the mexico war did all these things. thank you very much.

educating them. with that said, i'm concerned about investors in general not really understanding what they have, and if interest rates go up, even a small amount, there could be negative rates of returns on securities or funds and how will they react, particularly in an environment where there's a potential for less liquidity. dagen: washington, as they have in the past, pardon the language, screws things up, though, then the fed a likely to stay accommodative; right? in the coming year, do you think? >> they absolutely are. i think it's probably, at least near term, the right policy. my concern is if inflation unexpectedly rises for some reason, will they be quick enough to pull away all the enormous liquidity in the market place? they feel they can, but we have seen instances before in the past 20-30 # years where that's not been the case, and it's going to be pretty hard to figure out so, to me, that's one of the bigger, longer term issues not to come into play, at least through much of 2013. dagen: bob, really quickly, what do you like owning right now? what helps you sleep? what

as well. everybody has a stake in it. and i think it's going to improve the quality of education across the city of newark. >> that's fantastic. >> you know, so what you have here, as the governor said, is that you have both experience matters and what you do matter. it's fun anny that people have focused on the $5,000 bonus as opposed to the comprehensiveness of this new system. so what has been aligned is your work that you do every day, the experience that you carry into the classroom, and input at the school level. so that this is a dynamic new contract that's fair -- that's, you know, fair to the teachers, but most importantly, that's good for kids, and that's why it was when people looked at it, that's why they voted it up by more than 60%. but i want to just say one other thing, which is that in all this, sandy happened. >> yeah. >> and the governor did an extraordinary job in terms of all the work in new jersey. and you know, this is the way government should work. whether it's at the collective bargaining table or whether there is a disaster, you have lots of public employees w
